    I am a freshman going into my 2nd semester. I was wondering if it is too early to start preparing for the MCAT. As of now, of all the material on the MCAT the only class I have had is one semester of Gen. Chem.
    When should I start preparing for the MCAT?

    Thanks

    It's way too early. You should wait until you at least have ALL of your pre-reqs completed. Enjoy college and forget about SDN until you're ready.

    I am a Junior and will take it in May 2009.

    I just started preparing last week. I feel if I started that long ago I would forget most of the material by the test and have to re-learn anyways. Do your courses, get a good GPA, and do not worry about the MCAT for a while.

    Yeah focus that energy into getting the best GPA you can (primarily pre-req science courses)- it will help make MCAT studying that much easier, when you get there!
